TINY public toilets on a Barnsley high street went under the hammer for more than a three-bedroomed family home just across the road.
The toilets on High Street, Wombwell, had a guide price of £20,000 but eventually sold for £67,000 – £7,000 more than a house on the market on nearby Orchard Street.
Barnsley Council sold the toilets in the auction held at Bramall Lane in Sheffield on Tuesday and around six interested parties put bids in to quickly bump up the price.
